Venezuela: nearly two weeks of turmoil

Top Stories - Mon, 02/04/2019 - 08:46

Opposition chief Juan Guaido's claim nearly two weeks ago to be acting president plunged crisis-hit Venezuela into new turmoil, with a series of countries recognizing him as leader while others continue to back President Nicolas Maduro. On January 23, at a rally in Caracas of tens of thousands of people demanding that Maduro quit, Guaido -- head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly -- declares to cheering supporters that he assumes the role of acting president. Condemning Maduro's "usurpation" of power, he pledges to form a transitional government and hold free elections.

How to reinstall macOS if macOS Recovery is unavailable

Macworld - Mon, 02/04/2019 - 07:00

Mac 911 is a place you can come with no judgement, even if you managed to erase your Mac’s startup disk and you’re not sure what to do next. It happens! (In the spirit of confession, I managed to delete the core operating system off my first Unix system in 1994, because I thought, “This file takes up too much space!”)

Fortunately, Apple has you covered with macOS Recovery. You may know this tool, introduced way back in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, as a way to start up your computer to run Disk Utility without having your startup drive mounted, to reinstall macOS, and for a number of other technical purposes.

macOS Recovery occupies a small, invisible partition on your startup drive, and lives quietly there until you need it. But what happens if you erase the entire drive, including this hidden partition?

Trump comments spark Iraqi demands for US exit

Iraqi politicians on Monday hit back at Donald Trump after the US president said he plans to keep American forces in the country to spy on Iran. In an interview with CBS television, Trump reaffirmed his determination to pull the United States out of "endless wars" in Syria and Afghanistan but said American troops would stay on in Iraq, partly "to be looking a little bit at Iran". "The Iraqi constitution rejects the use of Iraq as a base for hitting or attacking a neighbouring country," President Barham Saleh said.

37-year-old former mayor wins El Salvador's presidential election on anti-corruption ticket

Top Stories - Mon, 02/04/2019 - 03:15

A former mayor campaigning on an anti-corruption ticket swept to victory in El Salvador's presidential election on Sunday, bringing an end to a two-party system that has held sway over the violence-plagued Central American country for three decades. Nayib Bukele, the 37-year-old former mayor of the capital, San Salvador, won 54 percent of votes with returns counted from 88 percent of polling stations, said Julio Olivo, the head of the electoral tribunal. Mr Bukele's two rivals from mainstream political parties conceded defeat. Definitive results would be announced within two days, Olivo said. Mr Bukele must now contend with U.S. President Donald Trump's frequent threats to cut aid to El Salvador - as well as neighboring Guatemala and Honduras - if they do not do more to curb migration to the United States. "Today, we won in the first round and we made history," Mr Bukele said in a victory speech to cheering supporters in the capital, after turning to snap a selfie with the crowd. "We've turned the page on power." Supporters of the Great National Alliance (GANA) celebrate in San Salvador  Credit: AFP Mr Bukele, who was mayor from 2015 to 2018, capitalized on the anti-establishment feeling sweeping elections across the region and further afield, as voters seek an alternative to traditional parties. "Let's see if he can do what he's promised for us," said Baltazar Sanchez, 30, one of hundreds of Salvadorans dancing, waving flags and blowing whistles in a plaza that Bukele had revitalized when he was mayor. "After 30 years of two parties, we've been dealt the best hand." Gang violence has made tiny El Salvador one of the world's most murderous countries in the past few years, driving Salvadorans to flee to the north. Among his campaign promises, Mr Bukele, an avid social media user who often sports a black leather jacket, said he would push infrastructure projects to limit such migration. Since the end of its civil war in 1992, El Salvador has been governed by the ruling leftist Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) and its rival, conservative Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA). Though he describes himself as from the left and was expelled from the FMLN, Mr Bukele has formed a coalition including a right-wing party that together has just 11 seats in the legislature. Outside the hotel in San Salvador where Bukele waited for the results, a group of supporters set off fireworks, beat drums and danced as early figures came in. "Yes, we did it! Yes, we did it!" they chanted. FMLN candidate Hugo Martinez conceded defeat shortly after Mr Bukele's victory speech while ARENA candidate Carlos Calleja said he recognized the election results and would call Mr Bukele to offer congratulations. Besides challenges on the international stage, when Mr Bukele takes office in June, he will face a sluggish economy and rampant poverty. He wants to modernize government and create an international anti-corruption commission with the support of the United Nations, following similar committees in Guatemala and Honduras. "We'll create a (commission) ... so that the corrupt can't hide where they always hide, instead they'll have to give back what they stole," Bukele said in January. Growing up, Mr Bukele's relatively wealthy family was sympathetic to the FMLN, the former leftist guerrilla army that became a political party at the end of the civil war. But 

Zimbabwe vice president returns to South Africa for treatment: newspaper
